Caller: english sounding guy
Same as the others asked if we were "business name" then asked if we accepted American Express. I asked them where they were calling from and the reason for the call. They said they were a potential customer, Sounded suspicious so I hung up.
They called on a landline number first and when I hung up on them, they then called back on a private number! Terrible. Caller: Some guy
Asked if we took credit cards, cash or cheques. Pushed him for details as to what he was enquiring about and who he was....he hung up. Scammer.
Caller: English Accent
Asked if I accept AMEX then hung up.
Same as all of the above. Young gentleman with a British accent asking to pay by AMEX on behalf of his father, when I quizzed him for more details - invoice number, name of company, he said he didn't know and would call back. Caller: Female
English accent, female, said she was calling on behalf of her boss and did we take AMEX. Hung up when I said we dont take any credit cards. Called again 3 mins later but did not answer. same scam as described above. These numbers need to be blocked or traced by telcos so police can deal with scammers.
Had my full name. Same as others, asked if I took credit card payments. I asked what for. He said my services. Replied, I don't offer any services. He hung up. English guy called Carl asking if I'm still on "x"street , I said yes then he asked if I accept American Express I said no and then he asked any cc, It clicked that this could be a scam so I asked him why and he said he is a student doing a research and trying to find out how Australian businesses operated blah blah I told him I wasn't interested in having a chat to him. Rang me asking if i took AMEX Called from a Sydney No (02) 6140 3464 asking re credit card payment options where we still at same address, they must have accesses Gov ABN site as asked if the business was the registered name not trading name. Eagerly awaiting what their next scam call will be they have met their match with us plus we have reported them Asked if we take american express and hung up..... Dodge! Received the same call this morning.
English accent. Asked if I accepted AMEX. When my questions got too tough, she quickly muttered her boss would call me back and hung up.
I have reported it to scam watch. Others should if they haven't already.
Hi I received exactly the same style of phone call. My caller had a slight British accent but sounded very nervous. I got the same asking if our company accepts Amex, he was calling for his aunt. I said what business are you looking for? Could not answer my questions or give me much information, I said ah ywould you call a number in relation to a company when you don’t know what the company is and can’t tell me what it is you want! I hung up Interestingly, I just rang the number back and there's an automated message that says "hello you have reached a market research company" and then it cuts out. If there are so many complaints about these numbers why don't Telstra cut them off. I am warning my office if anyone calls back from this number they are just to hang up. I just had the same call - and when I said we don't accept American Express (I don't know if we do or not) and then she just hung up. Man called and asked if we take American Express i said no only Visa he then asked f we still at the same location when i replied no they hung up An English male rang me and asked if my company took American Express card, I thought it very strange as the company he referred to hasn't traded for a number of years, I asked him why he wanted to know and what services had my company provided them with and he said they were a potential customer, I thought it was a scammer and said we didn't take Aamerica Express only mastercard or visa.That his call was suspicious and I was not interested in dealing with him, he said " is that how you talk to potential customers?" I said I didn't think he was a customer but a scammer. He hung up. Same experience as others - man rang to see if the business accepted american express - when I said no he said he had another call and hung up. Dodgy!! Caller: (02) 6140 3464
Just received a call from (02) 6140 3464 asking if we accepted American Express. Very very similar details to Laurie's call. When I pressed for more details the caller said he was in Queensland and just checking for a friend then promptly hung up.
